The Union Creek Journal

A Chronicle of Survival

Chronological Journal Entries

If you’re new to The Union Creek Journal, I highly recommend that you read the journal entries in chronological order.  Normally, the entries are listed newest first (reverse chronological order) to make it easier to keep up-to-date once you’re all caught up.  I recognize that not everyone has been with us since the beginning and the WordPress reverse chronological order makes it difficult to read from the first post to the last post.  So, I’ve created this page.  Below you will find links to each of The Journal’s entries in chronological order.  To read from oldest to newest, simply click a link for an entry, read the entry and then use your browser’s back button to return to this page and click the link for the next entry.

    Simply outstanding!

    Hurry up with the battle chapter man! I’m going to be in the boonies with no phone or Internet this weekend and first part of next week and I don’t want to miss it.

  3. I found this yesterday and couldn’t leave until I’d finished every update. It’s very well written and very powerful stuff. I’ve been doing a little prepping, but from the scenarios played out here I can tell that I’m a rank amatuer. I’m doing good on food, water, ammo and guns (and TP – lol), but no comms, no fuel and no defensive protection. Time to modify my planning and tactics.

  4. Just read through the whole story in 2 days, Brilliant. Keep it coming please. 1 roll per week per 4 people.

    Shoot! Weekends is when I work on my fishin’!


    Mud –

    This keeps getting better and better! Put me in line for an autographed hard-copy “Steve, I couldn’t have done it without you…” That aught to work.

    Best Regrds.

    I can see this scenario happening.. Fortunately, I have prepared myself and my family.. We have a river that can provide us with power and all the water that we need.. !20 acres gives us all the hunting for meet; that combined with the fishing in our river.

    Every year we plant an outsized garden .. and have more than enough to feed us and the neighbours if necessary.

    We are in a tiny community well away from any major urban centre.

    We gring our own flour, process all our own food. But that TP issue makes me think it might be good to REALLY stock up on that.

    I am hoping your going to tell more of how Rick went down from Ricks side of it. I have noticed you do tell your story that way some. You spent a bit more time developing Ricks character then seems necessary for it to end like that.

    You r right, Mud. I just finished hooking up 55 gallon drum to my gutters. Awesome!!! 10 minute shower added about 10 gallons of fresh water!! I think i am gonna need a bigger barrell, or more barrells hooked together.

    I hate weekends now because you never post a new chapter then.
